COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Should anybody ever ask us which two breweries in the craft beer world are the two manliest, we wouldn’t hesitate for a second before naming Tampa’s Cigar City and our very own Amager Bryghus. Whenever the two breweries meet, their main brass will engage in the manly sport of arm wrestling - be it in the brewhouse, in the tap room or in a random bar. All friendly playing around of course, and always with the same outcome: a humiliating defeat for the Tampa boys. Not only will our big man, head brewer Jacob Storm, beat them but so will fellow founder and CEO Morten Lundsbak - and both with right and left hand. Last time we met the Tampa boys, they pulled out saying they didn’t really care much for arm wrestling anymore. Nevertheless this beer was originally brewed and released by Cigar City under the name "Top Roll", apparently the name of a secret arm wrestling technique all employees at Cigar City must now learn to keep their job. All in the faint hope that maybe, just maybe one day one of them will beat an Amager boy. At Amager we shrug, and smile politely and wish them nothing but the best of luck.

Kita (2374) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 7, 2018
Bottle, 0.50l. Aroma of rich roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and licorice. Pours almost black color with thin creamy light brown head and average sparkling appearance. Taste totally resembles the aroma, mouthfeel is warming and mild spicy, while finish is moderate grassy bitter with long lasting aftertaste. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. God’s creation...

Mocna ciemna barwa, ładna drobnopęcherzykowa piana. W aromacie nuty dębowe. W smaku lekka wiśnia i gorzka czekolada. Bardzo dobre piwo. Mega gęste w smaku - dużo ciała.

Milter (1259) - Nyborg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2017
Wow. Endelig en øl med lakrids, der også smager godt. Dejlig fyldig øl, med god sødme og bitterhed.

crajun (1284) - , Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2017
As described. On draft. A soft porter. Light cocoa and chocolate. Sweetness. I don't eat licorice maybe that is it as others state. Subdued but well done and well balanced beer

3.4
Inhopwetrust (47) - Venezia, ITALY - NOV 15, 2017
Ok imperial porter. Niente di veramente spettacolare, ma bella tostata con la liquirizia che si percepisce eccome. Cioccolato, salsa di soia, caramello e un bel finale torrefatto. Manca solo un po' di complessità

4.1
nearbeer (5785) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2017
500 ml. with no bottling date. Pours ebony with a sticky disc of foam. Aroma of cocoa, graham cracker, bread, sea salt and a bit of coffee. Tastes of licorice, dark chocolate, bread and caramel. Some fig, soy sauce and black strap molasses in later sips. A hint of cherry in the aftertaste as well. Medium-plus mouthfeel with smooth low-medium fizz. No sign of the abv.
